Popular for its ‘ephemeral messaging’ Snapchat is one of the most used instant messengers today. For a lot of users, the main mode of communication on Snapchat is through images and videos. If you’re someone that keeps a record of every video you take, there is an option to save the videos you send to your friends on Snapchat. In this article, we show you how to easily save Snapchat videos.

Here’s how you can save a Snapchat video sent by someone else
If someone sends a video in chat, you can save it simply by long pressing the video and selecting ‘Save to camera roll’. The video will be saved on your phone and can be accessed from the Snapchat folder in your phone’s gallery. Once you save a Snapchat video to your phone, the sender will get a notification in chat, letting them know that you’ve saved the video. You can also save the video in the chat itself by long pressing it and selecting ‘Save in chat’. While Snapchat doesn’t send a notification to the sender when the video is saved in chat, the video itself will be highlighted in chat and can be accessed by the receiver as well as the sender.
